-election of barack obama. a cnn poll has president obama leading mitt romney by four points, 50% to 46%. a new england college poll of new hampshire likely voters has president obama leading mitt romney by three points, 49 to 46. tonight, nate silver of the new york times blog forecasts that has a 74% chance of winning re-election and over 13 point increase in the last two weeks. nate silver projects president obama will win 295 electoral votes and mitt romney will win 243. so krystal ball we are 12 days away from the ugliest creature that mitt romney has dragged into the presidential campaign, john sununu. he was driven out of washington, in scandal when he was the white house chief of staff for the first president bush. the man was driven out in scandal and it took mitt romney to drag him back in front of television cameras. >> it's been such a bizarre choice. he is the person he put forward the most. he's their lead surrogate and it's such a strange choice for his campaign and this is not the first time that he's stepped in it. he's the one who had to apologize for saying the president need
, the ohio public polls show that, yes, president obama is leading. he lost a little bit of ground, but he's made that back up again. one thing i would point out, chris, is that the obama campaign is seeing very different internal polling than the republicomney campaign is s is. republicans told me earlier this week that last week, their polls showed mitt romney up four to five points in ohio. by monday, mitt romney was leading president obama in these ohio republican internal polls by just one point. they've seen his numbers go down. the obama campaign tells me that he's consistently led two to four points in their internal polling. you might say it's spin, but these two campaigns are seeing very different data. >> do you trust these people that are giving you these numbers? are they just giving you numbers, or do you really believe them? which of these people are the most credible when it comes to numbers when you match them up against other evidence? >> one of the things that the romney campaign was suggesting, just about an hour ago on a conference call that they had, the romney pollst
poll also finds that president obama has a 12-point lead in the battleground states, where it matters. >>> i will come on "morning joe" are you sure you can fit in there? [ chuckles ] ♪ ♪ [ male announcer ] around view monitor with bird's-eye view. nice work. [ male announcer ] introducing the all-new nissan pathfinder. it's our most innovative pathfinder ever. nissan. innovation that excites. ♪ >>> i will come on "morning joe" and i will shave off my mustache of 40 years if we lose any of those three states. >> welcome back to "hardball." that was david axelrod, famous for his mustache. he's with the obama campaign, sounding very bullish on their chances, obama's chance of carrying michigan, minnesota, and of course, pennsylvania. these three states haven't been given much time or attention by the media or the money spenders until lately. that's because the romney camp and their cohorts in the super pac world announce they're now going to start advertising there. they're pouring in over 4 million bucks in pennsylvania, 2 million in michigan, and about $1 million in minnesota. t
obama than mitt romney. if you look at the polls, his campaign feels pretty good about where they are, and so he's sort of enjoying this. >> i get up this morning and started clocking it around 8:00. i started clocking minute to minute to minute to get the jobless number. then i go, i did say this before, i said if it's underrated it's okay for obama. if it's up a tick it's okay. but i didn't think the good news would be 171,000 new jobs, which is way above the 125,000 predicted, and now we have three months of 170,000-plus. >> you notice -- >> so it is starting to go up substantially. >> if you compare it to what happened when -- four years ago, i think they lost 400,000 jobs or so this month, it is change for the better. i notice -- >> i'd say. >> i notice today there was a lot less arguing about these jobs numbers than there have been the last -- >> you spoke too soon. someone who wasn't pleased with the jobs report was mitt romney. here he is with his statement. the candidate said, quote, this is a statement, today's increase in the unemployment rate is a sad remainder that the ec
tracking poll with from the leading obama 51-46%. and yet in the desperation that we are tlking about, you alluded to it, but we did not say it. the comment from the president about romney calling him of the answer. now he used the word. the president used the word. >> the president of the united states. gerri: what does that tell you? >> what is interesting about all of these, what they're showing is that the debates, a lt of independents like to present less having seen him in the three debates whereas a lot of independents like mitt romney much more. the washington post-abc poll, 47-10 for romney liking him more rather than less. for obama it was 17-26 liking him less rather than more. so the debates did not serve the president well, and he continues down this path. it's kind of inexplicable. gerri: i want to play some sound from all right who i think some of the problem. voters passed. >> college graduates should not have to live out their 20's and their child to bed rooms staring out at fading obama posters and wondering when they can move out and get going with life. gerri: doen't th
of all, you mentioned the real clear poll techs average in ohio being 2.3% in president obama's favor. as of this morning it is 1.9% actually and that is because the polls are closing. the latest poll was this morning an ohio poll by the ohio newspapers showing the race is a dead heat and that s what i feel. i also feel like the momentum is on our side. i have been at six of the rallies over the last week. i have also been at about a dozen victory centers around the state and the energy and enthusiasm is on our side this year. it is interesting to watch but look we were down probably 5 to 10 points before the debates. after the debates we are about dead even and moving our way. >> chris: senator warner your state of virginia is right in the path of that huge storm. if you lose power and you could lose it for days could that have an effect on early voting and even have an effect on election day? >> well, chris, the governor already declared a state of emergency. i think we don't have as extensive an early voting in virginia as other states. i actually, though, think in terms of how the
at the poll that came out, president obama has a lead in the five-county areas. he has maintained that leads throughout in all of the various polls. i think the extreme positions of mitt romney, a woman's right to choose, number one, really puts him at odds with the moderates and stability in pennsylvania, and i am confident that the numbers the president will show in the suburbs will propel him to victory in pennsylvania. host: as you know, pennsylvania was referred to as philadelphia and alabama in the middle. there was this that said to make it close, mitt romney has to win big. what does he mean by that? guest: he has to win big in the central part of the state. we call it the t. there are two republican counties. it spreads across. he is going to do really well there. mitt romney is doing terrific in the t. i cannot believe our results down there. if you remember, in the primary, hillary clinton beat president obama. those people are very upset about the war on coal and the president dissing the coal business. i do not agree with josh. we are doing very well in the philadelphia suburbs.
but the polls show president obama with a five-point lead. some had it smaller. >> quickly, they say the economy is improving and according to the polls most give president obama a credit for. >> we're actually seeing that people voting for president obama supporting him in polls optimistic and bullish on the state of the economy. if you're a romney voter or you're leaning towards romney in the polls probably have the opposite view. that's where we're going to see in the exit polls come november 6th. >> all right. thank you very much. we appreciate it. taking the audience to breaking news. new video, president obama walking off the helicopter after the aerial tour of new jersey with governor chris christie right there who's certainly been praising the president's response to the storm. we'll hear from the two of them likely within the hour. or very soon. about to take a ground tour. imagine they're talking with people who lost everything or much of what they have. so we'll bring it to you. another image of the day likely the image so many will be talking about and maybe leading up to the electio
are here, in the swing states offering president obama is a clear path to victory. he's ahead in the polls and he's rising. in ohio, you've got president obama, he's been leading all along, and as you can see in the latest poll, averaged from real clear politics, he still is. this is why mitt romney is desperately campaigning in pennsylvania. it is a hail mary pass because he knows he's probably going to lose ohio. in wisconsin, president obama maintains a comfortable five-point lead. president obama is also maintaining his lead in nevada. in iowa, president obama is still ahead. the national average is closer, but president obama has been on the rise there as well. so early voting has been going on for weeks now. in some states, and there are some interesting numbers on party breakdown of early voters so far. now, most early voters have been identified as democrats in ohio, nevada, iowa, florida, and north carolina according to the associated press. republicans have the edge in colorado. let's turn to bob shrum, professor of public policy at nyu and contributor to the daily beast. great t
and into the polling booth for barack obama. >> i'm barack obama and i approve this message. >> reporter: with a 96% approval rating among black voters, though -- >> four more years! four more years! >> reporter: you may wonder why it's necessary. the reason? while support for the president among the democratic faithful remains high, this time, there's a decidedly different feel than that of election night 2008, a historic moment for the country as a whole, but a particularly meaningful one in the african-american community. >> i can't believe it! >> reporter: the tears flowed freely. raw emotion, hard for many to truly explain. thoughts of the legacy of slavery, jim crow and overcoming. converging in one epic instant. >> my dad, he cried, my household was very emotional. my family got together. >> i called my pops. it was a day he never thought he'd ever see. i never thought i would ever see it. >> reporter: but it is now four years later and euphoria has given way to the harsh reality of economic pain. and there are scars created by a divided country. still, at times wrestling with issues of race

obama in every poll, when it comes to the economy, i would be nervous, even in the battleground state obama seems to be up one or two, these economic numbers will probably slump them on election day. >> greg: i think appearing on mtv is a great move for president obama because at the hard-hitting questions will be faced with journalists who think libya is a swedish folk singer. so there won't be questions about that. questions like who is your favorite avengeer? this is really important. but i got to say also thank god that during his economic malaise, president obama focused on the important stuff like childhood obesity, birth control, electric cars. this administration is so lost right now. they need to gps to find their own butt. >> eric: i hope that the most pressing question comes out, when he speaks to mtv. >> andrea: the same one that bill clinton got. boxers or briefs? you newhen you go to mtv you get to crux of the issues. >> greg: pretend serious questions. like this job must be really difficult for you. sound smart and sensitive. >> andrea: the problem is over half of youth
national polls out there, gives president obama just a one percentage point lead nationally. that is a tie as the president heads back out today to speak with voters. president obama's back on the campaign trail. polls show him up by six in iowa, two in wisconsin and two in new hampshire, but this week he's focused on new jersey. >> we are not going to tolerate red tape, we are not going to tolerate bureaucracy. >> reporter: touring storm damage with republican rival governor chris christie. >> i cannot thank the president enough for his personal concern and compassion for our state. there will be some folks who will criticize me for complimenting him. well, you know what, i speak the truth. >> reporter: analysts say the president's picking up political points. >> the message that christie is sending voters is that obama is doing a good job. he's not a scary, socialist person, that he's somebody who can be trusted. >> reporter: in florida, governor romney criticized the administration's record helping small business. >> sometimes, regulators seem to look at businesses like they're the enem
crossover democrats, rural democrats. he pulls about 16% of them on our poll, where as obama only pulls about 5% republican support. so that crossover appeal so to speak of romney's in florida and the independent edge that he appears to have is making a difference. but good campaigns can change polls. they're not changed by polls. and the question is who turns out their voters and who does it best. we're going to find out today. today is the last day of early voting. and then on tuesday that's when the ball game is. >> mark murray, let me bring you in. both men have these op-eds in "the wall street journal." we have the headlines. real progress, but we're not done. that's from the president. and governor romney, a new direction for america. what are your thoughts on just the headlines alone, not even the content of the op-ed itself. but those two different headlines. >> well, right. they're actually two different realities. actually, when you look in all the polls, it doesn't matter what it is. democrats seem to be a whole lot more optimistic about the country's direction, or people who
, obama seems to have lost ground in the fox news poll compared to the exit polls from the 2008 election. you are also seeing in an erosion among independent voters. fox news poll shows that the president no polling as well as did he in 2008. other polls show a much greater advantage for mitt romney among independents, as high as 19%. >> bill: yeah. >> among independence. how this plays out we will see. in the end we have wanier and probably have a few winners among pollsters because there are different techniques and different strategies that pollsters have used and we will see who was more accurate. >> bill: all right, now, we have four days left. and there is a weekend news cycle. and i'm going to tell the folks something that's going to happen because, you know, i'm clay viewpoint as you know. >> o -- clair viewpoint a you clair viewpoint as you know. the cbs radio went all over the country. cbs radio is a powerful agent. they were ecstatic about the economy coming back. >> happy days are here again. >> consumer confidence suspect. anticipating better unemployment number tomorrow. if
, folks, the latest rasmussen data tracking poll, here it is, romney 49, obama 47 the same as the past three days and i take it all that i said about governor romney losing some momentum. he's kept that 2 point gap for the the last three days, above president obama. got it? i think i've cleared myself. we've made a lot of comparisons between 2012 and 1980 and now another one, gas lines, people in new york and especially new jersey lining up for literally hours. many stations don't have power at all and some have run out of the gas they've got and they can pump and they don't know when the tankers can get in to give them more gas. so, should stations be allowed to raise their prices, let the market decide who gets gas and who doesn't? all rise, judge andrew napolitano is here, i don't-- >> you never give me the easy ones. . [laughter] >> you realize of course, that if gas stations were allowed to charge what they wanted to charge, and to, to get rid of the gas lines, there would be a revolution, you realize that. >> do you realize that if buyers were willing to pay what they agreed to
i would today. joe biden went to wisconsin. but the top two were both in ohio. the latest polls show president obama with a slight lead there, but neither side is ready to call it over. it is the chance at being heard across mitt romney land. >> four more days. >> it is time. >> both sides are counting the days between now and tuesday. barack obama was greeted with chants of "four more years." he reminded the crowd. >> in four days, you have a choice to make. it is not between two party is orwo candidates. it is a choice between two different visions for america. >> the obama campaign says unemployment went up because more people are re-entering the job market, newly optimistic about jobs being created. >> the american auto industry is back on top. home values are on the rise. >> but mitt romney was quick to insist not enough new jobs are being created to energize the still is the candidate who knows how. >> i will have a lot of people offering advice, and i know a lot about it myself to begin with. >> virginia remains one of the most coveted prizes to win on tuesday. barack oba
. "fox news poll" showing him with a nine point ad vage over the president. with mr. obama on the campaign trail governor romney is sharpening the contrast with the president who is best to bring back prosperity for the nation. >> do you want the four more years like the last four years? >> no!. >> you want four more years where 23 million americans are struggling to have a good job? >> no!. >> you want four more years where earnings are going down every year? >> no!. >> you want four more years of trillion dollar deficits in washington? >> no!. >> reporter: governor romney drawing the sharp contrasts with government. do you want bigger government with stifling regulations or smaller leaner government to help the private sector to grow and create jobs. he dinged the president in a new ad today suggesting somewhere down the road he may appoint a secretary of business, watch. >> barack obama says he may appoint a secretary of business. his solution to everything is add another bureaucrat. why not have a president who actually understands business? >> reporter: now, as the pol
romney 49%-brah 49%-barack obama 48%. another poll shows pro seciselye opposite. obama 48%. but they're the same poll. with a margin of error, we have essentially a tie race but the obama team believes that their advantage is in the battleground states like iowa, states like nevada, states like ohio that mitt romney needs and we'll see whether they are right. but as of now, it appears unlikely that things are going to move very much over the next couple of days because romney's canceled campaign events tomorrow, so has the president. >> when we talk about the sort of being a dead heat in the popular vote, what do we know about the way the electoral vote may be breaking one way or another, given the way the polls have gone in the past week or so. >> the electoral vote count is what i was talking about with respect to the battleground states. the president has more states where he is either securely ahead or leaning his way than mitt romney does, and so he's got less distance to make up to the finish line in the electoral battlegrounds. for example, mitt romney's leading in the state
times" poll shows president obama maintaining a five point edge in ohio but in the swing states of florida and virginia his lead is shrinking. the race is a dead heat. mitt romney and president obama locked in a statistical tie. sandy up ended the race. >> president obama was knocked off the campaign trail by the storm, cancelling an appearance today in the critical swing state of ohio. on tuesday he visited the red cross headquarters in washington. >> my message to the federal government, no bureaucracy, no red tape, get resources where they are needed as fast as possible as hard as possible and for the duration. >> the president was replaced on the stump by a former commander-in-chief bill clinton. >> obama is far more likely to lift the middle class and give the poor a chance to work their way into it. >> president clinton appeared at a rally in minnesota. recent polls showed president obama's lead is shrinking. clinton made a stop in colorado another state that candidates are fighting hard to win. >> and your generosity this morning touches my heart. >> mitt romney took a br
. it is a poll taken in russia. that's right, all whopping 41 percent of russians want president obama reelected. only 8%, 8% back romney. oh, my goodness. they have cancer that sort of things. those romney supporters may want to kind of watch their backs given what is happening in russia these days. romney will have history on his side heading into next week's election. the republicans have won every single presidential election on november 6th. going back to 1860's when abraham lincoln beat democrat stephen douglas. only five days to get that election in and see if the street continues. i don't see why they don't just call the election based on that historical imperative. new reports tonight that dnc chairman w. wasserman shultz got involved in dated altercation with the florida police officer. he asked her to stop blocking traffic. wasserman shultz was greeting voters outside a polling station in the city of at ventura earlier this week. the policeman asked her to move to the sidewalk, pretty please. she reportedly refused to argue with the officer and the city's mayor he showed up to just a
other hypothetical. >> he said that russia poll earlier. i think it's notable that obama is only at 41%. 41-8. big margin, but he's under 50 and undecideds tend to break for the challenger. lou: to you want to rebut his analysis. >> i'll leave him to analyze their boat in russia. something interesting to watch. there continues to be an enthusiasm gap between republicans and democrats. barack obama ahead of mitt romney. even are slightly at which means for my party you have to get our enthusiasm level up to match the ground game. lou: and you're doing an excellent job of that. >> exactly correct. exactly correct. lou: he would like to say that one more time. >> exactly correct. he who turns out and get his vote out wins the election. the problem the democrats have is that may not be able to replicate the same kind of turnout as they had in 2008. very hard, particularly among young people and others who wer so involved. lou: you are one of the country's leading strategists. you understand these polls better than almost anyone. give us your sense of what is happening right now? our indepe
carl rove. mr. rove, new "new york times" poll out today shows president obama doing very well in florida, ohio, virginia. dick morris going to have thoughts on that later. but, do you take that poll seriously? >> no, i don't take those three polls seriously. here is why. in florida, they have obama ahead by 1 point. they have seven points more democrats than republicans. even in 2008 there were only 3 points more democrats than republicans. similarly ohio 5 point margin for obama. 8 point advantage for the democrats. 8 points in 2008. does anybody think ohio is going to be as democrat as it was in 2008. 2 points for obama. 8 point democrat in 2008. six points democrat. does anybody think it's going to be as good as it was in 2008. at mildly that's called absurd. >> bill: let me run it down for the folks. all the polls say, all of them say that prib voters are more motivated this time around. so when when mr. rove says do you think it's going to be the same democratic turnout in ohio as it was in 2008. the answer based on the data is no. because republicans are more motivated t
politics average of recent polls, romney resumed the post hurricane criticism of obama's presidency. >> we need change. for real change we have to take a different course. i will get the economy going from day one we are making changes. >> government reported consumer confidence is at the highest point since obama took office. romney if a new ad mocks the president for resurrecting a proposal on monday rejected by the congressional republicans earlier in year. for a new cabinet level secretary of business. romney slammed him on the stump for it, too. >> find something to suggest it will be better over the next fur years. we game up with an idea that he will create the department of business. i don't think adding a new chair in cabinet will help add millions of jobs on main street. >> the obama camp feigned shock at romney's disdain. >> this is an idea that republicans should have rushed to embrace when it was proposed on january 13. proposal for smaller, smarter, more efficient government. what is the thing that the republicans supported. >> new "associated press" poll shows by 10-point ma
average, there are nine polls included in this. 48.9% for president obama. 46.6% for romney. it seems almost every day there is something new out of ohio. what are you seeing on the ground there? >> i like north carolina. the candidates have been in ohio so much they literally have become pests. they will be here through the weekend. obama will be here monday in columbus with jay-z and bruce springstein. they are pulling out all the stops. what i see on the ground is a close race. i saw a poll today i trust that has dead even. the candidates now are in posture of going through the bases. because they are only about 2% of the voters here who are undecided. p there are hundreds of volunteers doing that. i expect we'll see another 2% election here. if romney loses the presidency because he loses ohio by 2%. he will wake up every day for the rest of his life regretting that he did not choose senator rob portman of ohio as his running mate. he will also regret the editorial entitled "let driz go bankrupt." if obama loses by 2% for a simple reason. the magic is gone. after the drudgery of f
on advertising. he's never led in a single poll there since he became a nominee. cnn has that in the obama category, but the president's lead has been shrinking and polls show president obama had been up as much 11 and 1 points over the summer and fall, but in a quinnipiac poll, he was only up by four. paul and ryan along with john avlon in toledo, ohio. romney has outspent the president in pennsylvania since he became the nominee. i saw this. i was stunned when our producer looked at these numbers. of the 15 million total, just in this week alone. is this money well spent? >> i think it makes a lot of sense for this reason. now, it's true that ohio might be a tighter state, but the question is, r it's the marginal benefit. mitt romney spent a ton of time in ohio and if spending an additional few hours as we get closer to the election could make a big difference in pennsylvania given he has spent far less time in that state, that's what you've got to think about. real additional hours in ohio make that much of a difference there, where as in pennsylvania, it could be a difference in defeat
at the individual polls in the yellow states which are the states that are undeclared. >> gregg: that's where obama has an edge? >> he has an edge in iowa, an edge in minnesota. he has an edge in wisconsin. most of all, ohio and wisconsin. that puts him over the -- >> i saw an iowa poll with romney ahead. i saw one where he had florida. >> i think florida will go to romney. north carolina and virginia. 15 or 20 polls in those swing states in the midwest -- >> i'm not sure i believe that. >> breaking 85, 90% obama. >> i'm not sure i buy that at this point. i think polling is so difficult right now. the people's response rates. i'm just saying -- by the way, some pollsters, we will have an execution on wednesday for somebody. >> i hope it's not me. >> i hope not either for your sake. >> gregg: last jobs report came out on friday and unemployment number ticked up from 7.8 to 7.9. does that make a difference? >> probably not. i think it was enough so that obama can keep talking. let me say about the hurricane and the jobs report. the hurricane forced obama during the last week to do what the three of u
with a brand new poll out of ohio. how close is the race in the buckeye state. and later, the obama administration gets a boost from today's jobs report. so, this is not something i want to say, but i didn't say it. why are they talking about the president. you see, c-max helps you load your freight, with its foot-activated lift gate. but that's not all you'll see, cause c-max also beats prius v, with better mpg. say hi to the all-new 47 combined mpg c-max hybrid. then don't get nickle and dimed by high cost investments and annoying account fees. at e-trade, our free easy-to-use online tools and experienced retirement specialists can help you build a personalized plan. and with our no annual fee iras and a wide range of low cost investments, you can execute the plan you want at a low cost. so meet with us, or go to etrade.com for a great retirement plan with low cost investments. ♪ for a great retirement plan with low cost investments. why they're always there to talk. i love you, james. don't you love me? i'm a robot. i know. i know you're a robot! but there's more in you than ju
